Tidbits



I thought today I'd just give you a few tidbits that are crossing my mind.

First, we lost two actors on the 11th: Kevin McCarthy and Harold Gould. 

Kevin McCarthy was 96. He died of natural causes. He acted in several movies including Invasion of the Body Snatchers, Death of a Salesman, The Misfits and Innerspace. He also appeared in several television shows.

Harold Gould was 86. He died from prostate cancer. He was a television actor known mainly as his roles of Martin Morgenstern on Rhoda and The Mary Tyler Moore Show and Miles Webber on The Golden Girls.

May they both Rest In Peace.

Speaking of television, it is the season for several of my favorite shows. 

Big Brother's season finale was on last Wednesday. Hayden, the 24 year old college student from Arizona, won the half million dollars. I wanted Lane to win but eh, what can I do? Nada! Actually if we really got honest, I would have liked to have seen Lane and Enzo in the final two and possibly Enzo winning. Ok, honesty, I slipped there for a minute...I wanted Lane to win it all!! Since I didn't talk about Big Brother this year, I guess I should leave it at that.

That same night, Season 21 of Survivor premiered. Woohoo! I really enjoyed it. They have the tribes separated into old (40 and over) and young (30 and under) and guess who is on the old tribe....

C'mon, guess...

I'll bet you'll never get it. 

Well, maybe if you're a big fan like I am you WILL...

It's JIMMY JOHNSON!!! Yes, the famous football coach Jimmy Johnson. Jimmy Johnson who coached both the Dallas Cowboys and the Miami Dolphins. Jimmy Johnson who is one of only two coaches to win both a college national championship AND a Super Bowl! I am psyched and can't wait to see how he does on the show! Although he is an older man now (67) and wasn't doing too well physically after setting up camp, I'm still hoping he does a great job! I'll just have to keep watching and see for myself. 

Of course, there is no problem with my continuing to watch. I've been a loyal fan since Season 1. I'll just have to remember that they've moved to Wednesday's.

I guess that's about all the rambling I'm going to do today. I hope all of you have a wonderful weekend!
